Social affiliations with third parties

The BUG works in an area that requires close exchange and cooperation with associations of people and groups of people affected by discrimination. These are predominantly national associations that represent the interests of the 6 groups named in the AGG, but also trade unions, denominational associations and all organizations that are active in the field of equal treatment and protection against discrimination. Here, the BUG attaches great importance to networking that aims to strengthen common concerns without entering into a competitive situation.

In August 2013, the BUG received consultative status with the Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC) of the United Nations (UN) and can now contribute to the work of the UN committees dealing with equal treatment and non-discrimination. This was confirmed by the ECOSOC four-yearly report of 01/29/2018.

Since January 2015, the BUG has been a recognized association that is allowed to support and conduct lawsuits within the framework of Section 13 (3) of the Disability Equality Act.

The BUG has been funded by various foundations since it was founded. Current sponsors can be found here .
